Neal Talks Health Care In Recent Berkshire Visit
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
04:16PM / Sunday, July 09, 2017

Neal spent time discussing various issues, though health care was the top, with reporters after announcing a grant for Fairview Hospital on Thursday. GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass. — A single payer health care policy has been picking up steam and support among Democrats locally and nationally.    It had been a key part of Bernie Sander's presidential platform. U.S. Sen. Elizabeth recently called for such a program to be considered. And Massachusetts state legislatures have put forth a bill to study on moving to one.   But U.S. Rep. Richard Neal is somewhat more reserved about bringing such a program to the federal level. He says he'd like to see Massachusetts

But that's exactly how Julia Bowen will be remembered.    Bowen shepherded the Berkshire Arts and Technology Public Charter School over the past 14 years, bridging its beginnings as a three-grade school in rented rooms to a middle and high school in its own renovated and expanded building.    Her legacy as executive director at BArT was cemented in

@themarket: Global Interest Rates Rise, Global Stocks Fall
By Bill Schmick,
11:05AM / Saturday, July 08, 2017
It is something we really haven't seen in quite some time. Back in the day, before the financial crisis, interest rates and stocks most often moved in opposite directions. This week investors got a taste of what the future might hold.   U.S Treasury yields on the 10-year note (the benchmark average) ticked up to 2.39 percent at one point. Across the pond, the German Bund (their benchmark) rose .5 percent. Those were big moves in the debt world. Why are interest rates on the rise all of a sudden after years of declines?   Some would say it just had to happen. Global central bank policy has just been too loose for too long. I don't necessarily agree with that view, but at

PITTSFIELD, Mass. -- Eight was not enough to silence the Thunder on Friday.   The Greylock Thunder 16-and-under Babe Ruth Softball team bounced back from two demoralizing eight-run innings to win two games over the Berkshire Force in the New England Regionals at the Doyle Complex.   In the morning, the Adams-based Thunder rallied after falling behind, 8-1, in the first inning, to earn a 9-8 to wrap up pool play in the four-team tournament.   In the afternoon, the Thunder squandered an 8-0 lead when the Force rallied for eight in the top of the seventh.
